Grown Up Pain

I never liked him on Growing Pains. Now I know why.
Kirk Cameron is co-host of "The Way of the Master" with evangelist Ray Comfort. The weekly half-hour program features evangelism training and video clips of actual street witnessing. Cameron says believers must witness in word and in deed. He acknowledges that most people do not want to appear pushy or offensive when it comes to sharing the gospel; and as a result, he says, many remain silent, choosing instead to just "live the life."


[Cue sound effects]Come back from the Dark Side, Kirk. Come back![End sound effects]

Update: KJ pointed out to me that the quote I have here has nothing to do with my mission statement or as he/she puts it my "single issue project". So - here's a Kirk Cameron quote for you that will do the trick:
"It's true that many homosexuals are very kind, nice people. But the bible teaches us that homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God, and sin makes God angry. Many homosexuals say they were born that way and they didn't choose to be homosexual, but Jesus said that we must resist sin. Temptation isn't a sin in and of itself, but acting on the temptation is. Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice..."

....And so on. But it wasn't enough for Cameron to just have this opinion and keep it to himself. Instead, he took to the streets of California to minister directly to the gay community... and not surprisingly, there were no shortage of gay men to be found. (We ARE talking about California here.)
(From a Trinity Network interview via a pop culture blog)
See - he doesn't like gay people and he does think we can change. Or be saved. It isn't the Christianity I have a problem with - it's the hate.

Those "silent" people who are living the life speak much more effectively than someone who accosts strangers on a street corner.

Nothing in that quote had anything to do with your single issue project here. So, just being and living as a Christian makes you bad?

That's called discrimination. And you with your talk of hypocrisy from the religous right.
